‘Ted’ TV Series From Seth MacFarlane Based On Movie Ordered By Peacock; UCP & MRC Producing

Peacock has given a straight-to-series order to Ted, a live-action comedy series based on Seth MacFarlane’s hit 2012 movie, from UCP and MRC Television.

MacFarlane is in negotiations to reprise the voice of the lovable foul-mouthed teddy bear. MacFarlane and Erica Huggins will executive produce through MacFarlane’s Fuzzy Door. The project stems from MacFarlane’s blockbuster overall deal with UCP.

For now, there are no plans for the film’s Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis to appear in the series, which is expected to be a prequel to the 2012 movie.

MRC Films and Universal Pictures’ Ted, directed by MacFarlane in his feature helming debut and written by MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, starred Wahlberg and Kunis, with MacFarlane providing the voice and motion capture of the title character.

The film tells the story of John Bennett (Wahlberg), a Boston native whose childhood wish brings his teddy bear friend Ted to life.
